When I first heard about this project at the end of last week I knew I had to track it down and it was well worth the effort.
Created Sebastian Errazuriz and set in Santiago, Chile, back in 2006 Memorial of a Concentration Camp was a week long installation at Chile’s national stadium where dictator Pinochet in 1973 imprisoned thousands of political prisoners who were tortured and killed. After planting the 10 meter high magnolia tree, the stadium doors were open to the public as a park – offering a space to stop, look again, and remember.
After the week long project an “impossible, cathartic soccer match” was played infront of a crowd of 20,000 people.
